Aruba Instant Captive Portal + Apple Activation

Hi guys,

I have a provision network that I will be using to setup new iPads.  This has a captive portal so that I can onboard the units but we have hit a brick wall as the ipad requires activation which the captive portal seems to get upset about.  We have whitelisted apple.com but still not able to get through.  

 

I can jump on another network and activate, but I really need to make this as easy as possible.

 

Thanks,

Drew

Re: Aruba Instant Captive Portal + Apple Activation

Yes...you need to enable Apple Captive Portal Bypass.  In your redirect link to OnBoard, (assuming you're using ClearPass), insert "landing.php" into the URL.  For example:
